USC hosts 2014 Affordable Housing Design Leadership Institute

The USC School of Architecture will host the fifth annual Affordable Housing Design Leadership Institute (AHDLI) on September 16-18.

 

Sponsored by Enterprise Community Partners, the Institute brings together a team of designers (including USC faculty member Lorcan O’Herlihy) and a team of non-profit developers who each present a project in the schematic design phase for feedback. This year’s theme is “Sustainable, Connected Communities, ” addressing best practices in community design and how L.A. can become a national model for transit-oriented development.

 

Brought to USC by faculty members Larry Scarpa (co-founder of AHDLI) and John Mutlow, the conference will include 3rd-year undergraduate students who will be developing some of the projects further in studio.

 

David Baker, FAIA, LEED AP and Andrea Cochran, FASLA are the keynote speakers; their lecture on Wednesday, September 16, at 6 pm in the Gin D. Wong Conference Center, Harris Hall, is open to the public.

 

Note:  The story previously did not mention Larry Scarpa as one of the faculty involved.
